Can John McCain Still Win?

The latest Washington Post/ABC poll shows Obama leading McCain by 10 points (53 percent to 43 percent among likely voters). With polls showing this strong a lead for Obama, asks the question of how McCain/Palin might still win the election next month... lists four factors that might still lead to a McCain win:
  • The volatile voter -- voters can change their mind up until the last minute
  • The October surprise -- an economic or foreign-policy surprise might benefit McCain
  • Another McCain dice roll -- a dramatic gambit
  • Know when to fold them -- a perfect selection by the McCain campaign of the key battleground states
The most interesting suggestion is that perhaps McCain will publicly attack the presidency of George W. Bush, certainly a risky move with the Republican base.
